US Dollar Consolidation Tightens
Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT
Flip the chart of the EURUSD and you’ve got the US dollar index. The analysis is the same as well. That is, the recent move (in this case strength) has failed to extend and a break of Monday’s range will determine the trend for the week. In the event of strength, levels of interest are 7700, 7826 and 8030. The 200 day average at 7814 and December low / February high at 7878/87 reinforce the entire 7800 handle as one of significance. A drop below 7582 would shift focus to 7550.
Support/Resistance Index (M,W,D) – 3, 3, 3
